The singer has sold her house in London and bought a property in Hollywood.

The 26-year-old said she is moving to Los Angeles because her talents as a singer are appreciated more in the US.

"In America they see me as a singer whereas here I feel that people don't appreciate my voice. I've dedicated my life to singing and I want it to be taken seriously. Here it seems that all people want to know is what I've had for breakfast and who I'm sleeping with," she told The Mail on Sunday's Event magazine.

The former coach on BBC show The Voice came out as bisexual in 2011 and is often questioned about her sexuality.

She admitted: "Sometimes I don't know when to stop. Sometimes I should just say nothing, but I can't help myself and make some big statement when saying nothing would be much more appropriate."

The Price Tag star went on to claim that she is a "rubbish date" because she is too messy.

"I'm the sort of person who will order ribs on a date, or the spaghetti bolognese and get it all down my front. And I'm too full-on as a date, too intense. It's like, if I'm going to be someone's girlfriend I have to be a really good girlfriend, which can be a bit much for some people. Maybe I should relax more," she said.

"People expect me to be really aggressive and they're surprised that I can be vulnerable or feel fragile. I'm probably the least aggressive person you could meet. I'm direct yes, honest yes, but I'm not going to punch you. I am actually... a really sweet girl."
